As well as providing accommodation to some of the most vulnerable in society, social housing also makes a key contribution to wider wellbeing factors, including health and wellbeing, educational performance, economic opportunities and building cohesive and mixed communities.

In an ever changing and challenging housing policy landscape, including welfare reform, rollout of universal credit and financial cuts, the sector is closely reviewing Allocations and Lettings Policies to make them efficient, effective, and able to demonstrate best use of their stock.  Allowing for flexibility in property allocations at a local level is essential to ensure the needs within communities are met, tackling low demand and fulfilling the statutory duty to assist local authorities in meeting their strategic housing functions around the housing needs of any prospective tenants.

This timely, free roundtable for NHC members will:

  • Explore the latest policy picture on allocations and lettings
  • Cover aspects of the Homelessness Reduction Act – what does this mean for allocations and letting policies and what do you need to know?
  • Explore and discuss current challenges and future opportunities
  • Hear from Incommunities in their work in tackling low demand areas
  • Share new approaches to tenancy sustainability
  • Share partnership working approaches and fulfilling your statutory duty.
  • Provide the opportunity to network and share learning
